ICMMI 2011 : International Conference on Man-Machine Interactions 2011
Call For Papers
PRELIMINARY CALL FOR PAPERS
THE 2nd INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON MAN-MACHINE INTERACTIONS ICMMI 2011
October 6-9, 2011
The Beskids, Poland
Organised by the Institute of Informatics, the Silesian University of Technology, Gliwice, Poland and the Institute of Theoretical and Applied Informatics, Polish Academy of Sciences, Gliwice, Poland.
ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
Machines have become an indispensable part of a man’s life. Some say that humans are enslaved to modern technology and reject progress on principle, while fanatics of new trends simply must have not only the latest useful tools but every gadget and gimmick as well. We see machines used in daily routines or in research, to make coffee, to save lives, to study secrets of DNA on the micro, and for space travels on the macro scale. The aim of the Conference is to bring together scientists interested in all aspects of theory and practice of man-machine interactions, providing an international forum for exchanging ideas, setting questions for discussion, and sharing the experience.
The first ICMMI Conference was held in 2009 and it was dedicated to the memory of Adam Mrózek, distinguished scientist in the area of decision support systems in industrial applications. The event turned out to be such a succes that it has been decided to treat it as the beginning of the cycle of conferences organised biennialy.
Authors are encouraged to submit technical papers describing original, previously unpublished research work in the area of Man-Machine Interactions, not currently under review by another conference or journal. Both theoretical and applied papers are of interest for the conference.
Novel and innovative work in areas including but not limited to tracks:
- Computational intelligence - fuzzy set, rough sets, near sets, intelligent systems, evolutionary computation, neural networks, soft computing, soft control
- Decision support - knowledge acquisition, advances in expert systems, autonomous agents, support vector machines, man-machine automation
- AI and simulations in biosciences - bioinformatics and genetics, microarray analysis, computer modelling in biology, perceptual systems, telemedicine and e-health, mechatronics and bio-mechatronics, bio-sensors
- Assistive technologies - e-learning for disabled, accessible computer hardware, computer software for disabled, robots and devices for disabled, accessible internet, adaptive and intuitive interfaces
- Data processing, storage and transfer - data warehouses, data storage and retrieval, data mining, knowledge engineering, computer networks and communication systems, microcontrollers and microsystems, multimedia systems, compression techniques, system integration
- Pattern recognition - computer vision, image recognition, image processing, topology of images, voice recognition and processing
